A large cloud provider has high volumes of network traffic moving through data centers throughout the world. These providers manage the infrastructure for thousands of companies, across racks and racks of multitenant servers, and cables that stretch underseas, connecting network packets with their destination.

Google Cloud Platform has grown steadily into a wide range of products, including database services, machine learning, and containerization. Scaling a cloud provider requires both technical expertise and skillful management.

Lakshmi Sharma is the director of product management for networking at Google Cloud Platform. She joins the show to discuss the engineering challenges of building a large scale cloud provider, including reliability, programmability, and how to direct a large hierarchical team.
